As I was growing up, many times I would sit in a nearby room and listen to my mother pray. Sometimes she would pray for over 2 hours naming all twelve of her children and I would patiently wait to hear my name and hope she would pray for me. My eyes would tear up and I felt so...
write it. I always thought that more the point than playing someone else's stuff.
I've written loads of songs. I have had a couple of albums released and won a couple of awards over the years. I'm in a dry period in the last few months but sometime soon the writing bug will...
... Oh she has that flaming blazing temperament So I question the relationship's healthiness With day and night passing through our lenses The Universe calls for our testing In this ecstatic dramatic flashbang Mathematics cannot stand this campaign The epiphany is shifting our...
I don’t wanna catch you in anymore lies
I don’t wanna know if this isn’t right
The pain of letting go isn’t worth the fight
And I don’t wanna see through the look in your eyes
I don’t wanna doubt you anymore tonight
I just wanna believe that your really mine
I wrote this song one night quite easily and quickly - then I proposed to my now wife. We'd been livin together for 12 years and I thought that was long enough...people who say that marriage after a long period of living together doesn't change anything - bullshit...everything...
Songwriting is the best form of expression to me. Not only do I get to make music, but I get to let it out though playing it.
The writing process is always interesting to me. I'd love to hear some lyrics and, more importantly, why you wrote the song, what the lyrics mean, and...
what could easily be hundreds of songs written in the drawers of my room or folders in my closet.
I even wrote one complete song for an up & coming band in high school & co-wrote some of their songs after the lead singer & I became friends & he expressed an interest in my...
This song is the title of my CD I recorded about 15 years ago. It's about the wise man that built his house on the rock and the foolish man that built his house on the sand. When writing this song as so many of the songs I've written before I don't mean literally but rather...
Nothing better than writing a song, getting it together with a band and playing it live, or better still hearing it on the radio (yes it has happened quite a few times) ... or best still seeing it on TV (a couple of times) .. like a childhood dream come true ..
ook, heres another one I wrote. This one though is much more recent. I wrote it last week.
I'm always looking for the one person
who'll over look my flaws and understand my mind
its a big day you may meat that, special person
I'm so used to constantly having other musician's works stuck in my head. Well I recently started writing again and within a few days, I've only written about 5 songs. One of them, this one line, keeps going over and over in my head. It's just weird, though. Usually when I have a...
for a djent/metal track. Meant to be screamed, not sung haha
What are we?
I clearly see
It lights up the dark
So please don't bury me
You're tearing out my heart!
I stumble, in the dark
Dead hands, they grab for me
I cant see, where you are
**** off, just...
She walks in with a,
Smile and a grin,
And laughter for everyone,
always there for everyone,
No matter how much,
She's hurting inside,
She never shows it,
No she never shows it,
She's filled with love,
She's filled with joy,
Nobody knows that,
She is hurting,
Cause nobody see's...
writing a song i usually don't write anymore.. but when i do i put together something that can be mentioned or stated as a 'quote for the books' but i digress the harder things get in life i feel more inspired to make music
at random times, and it tends to require a lot of my focus. As fellow musicians know, the inspiration doesn't last. So if I'm ever chatting or engaged in something with you, but am not responsive, it's probably because I'm working on a musical idea I'm trying to write down...
If i could walk
Up the highest mountain
Fly the sky's
An swim any ocean
Il give my all
To come rescue you
Spread your wings
Dont be afraid I will guide you thru
Il stop the rain an showers
Live our life
Like its our final hours (oohhhhh)
There is a time for those tears,
Moments to collide with the knife,
But tonight let me show you the world,
The world of insanity,
Twisted corners with the jagged screams,
Dancing horrors from the nightmares within,
Every step I take causes the voices to cry in pain,
Well most of my songs are intended to be closer to the genre of the fray (pop-rock and speak to a deeper level of emotion than most)...this next one I can envision as more of a country song (like one of Taylor Swift's more upbeat songs where she kind of sing/talks. Let me know...
Try to see
Try to see,
What I'm feeling inside,
They can't see,
What I feel inside,
Why can't they see,
Why don't they see,
That I'm crying in my bed,
Beggin for forgivness,
Hopin something someone will,
Take away all this pain,
But they have to try to see.
So I'll laugh,
Always Making up for lost time, can't get ahead for falling behind
In a world that is moving way too fast.
With all this modern technology, so many people living with so many needs
Planning for their futures, but still reminded of their past.
All the riches this world can hold...
I've written over 100 songs. My true dream is to connect with some producers who want to collaborate with me and make a song, and I'd hire singers.
The bad part is I live in a small town and don't know any singers. I've tried reaching out to people on Craigslist, to no avail...
This song came to me in a very odd way. I woke up one morning singing the chorus and as I laid there, I thought to myself, "I've never heard this song before!" but some of the words sound familiar. I woke up singing, 'My cup is filled up it runneth over, my cup is filled up it...
Be nice. It's a diamond in the rough. Let me know what you think? And any suggestions :)
Intoxicating, just like an adrenaline rush
You knocked me off my feet, boy you were oh so lush
Now I’m sitting here picking up the pieces
But I finally have a thesis
What is love?
I was five. I would pretend I had a cane and top hat like the WB frog and, tap dancing around, I'd sing,
I'll never run away
I'll never run away
I'll never run away again. (repeat 20 times)
Needless to say, I had never actually run away at that point. Poetic license and...
so a guy can sing it.
DROP EVERYTHING NOW!
"You say I move like a full on rainstorm,
And you're a house of cards.
You say I'm reckless and you oughta be running
but we- both know that you won't get far.
I stood there in front of you girl,
Close enough to...
La reine pour ton coeur,
comme parler une langue tres froid,
est-ce que tu voudrais une entree?
La huitre tare sont ouverte,
La huitre tare et l'abus sexuel.
Le roi est le soleil tres brille!
retire-toi avant de jouir,
la huitre est chaud, attache-moi!
Its Saturday night and Im all alone
Sitting here right by my phone
And Im not fooling anyone, no, no
But no one knows what Im all about
They look at me without a doubt
But they dont know anything, no, no
Its all right here
I dont care where it is that I...
This song I wrote a while ago when I had strong feelings for a girl... I guess this is the best time to share it with yall...
Im sorry, if im coming on too strong
But I have waited far too long
To say four words that can make or break.
So will you be mine? please take your time...
i want to know what you guys think. I think you would be able to figure out the flow on this one.
Nobody is perfect
We all live in our own life,
Thinking we need to be better than everyone else that is at flight,
We walk by without recognize,
Even ignoring the ones we once said...
for 7 months. I am a young musician, and I love music dearly. I sing and play acoustic guitar. Although I am told so many things, by so many different people. Like, "Get a job!" or, "Find something productive to do." I never understood this town, or the people in it. I get told...
I wrote this story based on a dream I had several years ago. The Bible say's in the days of Moses they had the laws of God engraved on tablets of stone. Today, let the Holy spirit engrave them upon the fleshly tablets of thine heart...
born from song
created in the dissonnce and harmony of this aotearoa sublime
carved in symphonies of community
my life is the empty page
for every lyric
in this way
through verse, chorus, bridge and refrain
for I would stand upon a...
Not that I want to make you cry...But I've always loved those songs that go right for the deepest, darkest, hardest things we have to deal with in this chaotic world.
I keep hoping to find ways to write about things so personal and so true that, like digging through to China...
I am 23 an been writing since I was 14
But use to hide my writing skills away
Only recently I have came out my shell
And showed family an friends
They say I have got talent and could progress
As a songwriter/lyricist
I would like to work with other songwriters
Help them an...
Its been a while since I've turned more than one song in a month. I've turned two thus far this month. They're not complicated pieces by any means, but they are what I like to call thinking pieces. Some what simple music (ok, a few small tricks between the meter of the lyrics...
Apparently I write too many lyrics. I think this is the 6th song I posted. I hope nobody is getting annoyed with me and I'd love to hear your opinions of what you think about my lyrics so feel free to leave a comment below :) I'm thinking this genre for this song would pop-rock...
